A 19-year-old is aiming to complete a 50,000km journey across the globe and an attempt at a Guinness World Record.
Zara Rutherford, 19, departed from Belgium and is now attempting to become a world record holder as the youngest female pilot to fly solo around the world.
Rutherford is flying a Shark ultralight plane.
She is scheduled to visit 52 countries and cross the Equator twice on her route, which was chosen to comply with Guinness World Records’ requirements for an “around the world” flight.
Currently the youngest woman to fly solo around the world is Shaesta Waiz.
She was 30 at the time of her flight. The male version of the record was set by Travis Ludlow at age 18.
